Strawberry Dream Pie

|

I think we’re all so excited to finally see Spring arrive. Yesterday it was actually snowing but I didn’t let that stop me from buying myself a pretty hydrangea bouquet.  Want to know another way I’m going to ignore what’s happening outside? By eating some of this! My Strawberry Dream Pie is a wonderful no-bake treat that will help me forget all about that silly snow.

My easy Strawberry Pie recipe has a graham cracker crust, cream cheese filling and a sweet strawberry topping. You'll be savoring every bite!

Besides being sweet and refreshing, this pie also has such a lovely presentation. To me it looks like a gorgeous spring flower with red strawberry “petals”. This dreamy pie starts with an easy store-bought graham cracker crust. I could make my own, but it would require an extra few steps. And this mamma of two has enough “steps” in her day! 😉  Next is the filling, a sweet cream cheese mixture combined with chopped strawberries.  And finally, the most prettiest layer of all is the sliced strawberries on top.

Strawberry Dream Pie --You'll be savoring every bite!

All you need is six ingredients and about 20 minutes in the kitchen. The hardest part of this whole recipe is waiting an hour for the pie to just chill. 🙂 But then your reward is oh…so sweet!
